Giuliani against marriage equality, says GOP should "Get the heck out of people’s bedrooms"

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Well, getting out of our bedrooms is probably starting to make good political sense for Republicans.

“I think that marriage should be between a man and woman,” Giuliani said, “but I think that the Republican Party would be well advised to get the heck out of people's bedrooms and let these things get decided by states.”

Giuliani said he thinks the decision by the New York state Senate to allow same-sex marriages was “wrong,” but he said “there are other things that I think are wrong that get decided by democratic vote.”

“And now,” he said, “we should move on.”

“I don't know what the heck the Republican Party wants to do getting involved in people's sexual lives and personal lives so much for,” Giuliani continued. “Stay out of it. And I think we'd be a much more successful political party if we stuck to our economic, conservative roots and our idea of a strong, assertive America that is not embarrassed to be the leader of the world.”
Of course, there is a really big Evangelical segment of the Republican party that are motivated by fear and hatred of LGBT Americans. It certainly is hypocritical of Giuliani to chastise Republicans to stay out of our bedrooms and then claim marriage is between a man and woman. Seems to me that one has to be overly concerned about what goes on in our gay bedrooms to claim we shouldn't have the same rights to the institution of marriage. To claim otherwise is subterfuge and doublespeak.
